The show went very well. Dybbuk Q. Klezmer brought wonderfulness to the songs. Lizzie sang beautifully. I played instruments. At the circle Saturday night Lizzie and I did Daughter Of The Red, with interjections from a young woman sitting behind Lizzie that were wonderful. After which we collapsed.

There was an unexpected addition to Eric's Quest For Pizza. I had intended to get to Pagliai's sometime soon, but since it was right down the street we went with Bryan and family (as mentioned before). It was yummy and I will get my review up shortly.

The music track went amazingly well. Lojo Russo and Adam Stemple were bad bad people. Adam also played with Chas Somdahl yesterday. Bryan had a sterling set with CW Smith backing up on cajón and vocals.

Robert from Orckes & Trolles said that this show wasn't as dirty as last years, he sounded a little disappointed.

The Rocky Horror Sing-A-Long went wonderfully.

The WSPA had a blast, we went to the pool every day. Jared was seen when it was time for food, although even there he tended to just go to the con suite. WSPA-3 had a great time and made some new friends.

I had a great time with my family this weekend, life is good. Collapse now.

Even though I wasn't there (although my hands did show up) rehearsal went very well for the Demicon show. Dybbuk has some up with come very cool parts for the songs, especially Rain and Calvin's Girl. This is going to be a good one!

Tomorrow night at Demicon I am doing an increasingly rare solo show. I'll be doing a couple old favorites, but most of the show will be newer songs. And in the middle of the set a taste of my next project, which will hopefully start rehearsing at Duckon. Expect big echoey guitars and deep boomy synthesizers. I hope it works.
ericcoleman: (Toyboat)
Toyboat will be at ...

Penguicon
Jean has put together an exceptional music track. It's gonna be fun

Demicon
I gotta say I am pretty darn proud of the music track I put together for Demicon.

Duckon
And of course Duckon. Filk Hall Of Fame Inductee Jan DiMasi always puts on an amazing weekend of music. Don't miss it.

I will also be doing a solo show at Demicon. Be afraid, I haven't played solo in a long time (no fiddlers this time).
ericcoleman: (Default)
Performing in the Demicon Music Room this year will be Tom Smith, the great Luke Ski, Adam Stemple, Beth Kinderman, Bryan Baker, Orckes And Trolles, some wise ass who always wears tie dye and maybe one or two more.

I didn't thank the ever wonderful [livejournal.com profile] chia_rhino (still one of the coolest names on LJ) for watching the merch table. Poor woman, forced to listen to music all day (especially those clowns who went on at 5).

Everything balanced till I got my hands on it, and in 10 minutes of sales I managed to not check off several items sold ... SHE did it right ALL DAY.
ericcoleman: (Default)
While I am thinking about this, for you Second Life folks, Ka Klick and his band will be broadcasting live from Demicon ... providing we get the tech worked out ... like I said it was an insane setup this morning.
ericcoleman: (Default)
Last nights show was fun. I chased out the folks who hadn't seen me before (why does this guy keep talking? In the middle of songs even?) but the folks who stayed were a little more used to me. Being heckled by Adam Stemple and Lojo Russo always makes for ... well ... it was only a little brutal. This after sitting at the restaurant next door listening to them ... I don't know how many of you may have met them, but they're bad bad people.

Let's see if I can remember what I played

Hey Dad
Trophy Wife
Bang My Bald Spot
Jordan Cochrane
How Can I Miss You?
edit Only Coffee House In Town (with [livejournal.com profile] mike46 on lead guitar, thank you [livejournal.com profile] gamerchick for remembering this one
Dancer/Hides

Geeze, did I only manage 8 songs? That may be a new record for me in an hour show. I'll ask around and see if there was anything I missed. (and indeed there was)

[livejournal.com profile] gamerchick just told me that Hey Dad went on for 17 minutes. That is indeed the new record, beating the old record of 12 minutes by way too big of a margin.

There was a simply too insane of a setup this morning, but everything works. There will be three bands in a row at the end of the afternoon. It's gonna be nuts.

The Flatland Ramblers are on now, and I forget every year how much I love their music. I need to get out to see them other times, since they are local to me.

More as the day goes along.

I'm off

Luke's show was great last night. I struggled with the sound a bit, but got things running right. I did have an ITunes crash, the first time it has ever happened ... Sorry Luke.

The circle after was amazing. It was Bryan, Beth, Gundo, Jason and a guy who I met last year, but typical of me I never remember his name. We played for a bit, then Adam and Lojo invaded.

The circle was a blast, there was much silliness, much seriousness and GREAT music ... I finally rolled into bed around 3 am. Fortunately the drive home is only 40 minutes. So I am collapsing in a matter of moments.

Thank you everyone who made the music so great this year. I already have big plans for next year, since it's Demicon 20. Most announcements on that as time goes along.
ericcoleman: (Default)
I got everything ready for the shows this weekend ... except ...

That ever pesky set list for MY show

So I winged it.

Let's see if I can remember what I played

Hey Dad !!!
Hides

I think that's it, there might have been one more in there somewhere

It was one of the most fun shows in ages. The audience was fun to play with, I only spaced on lyrics on a couple of songs ... and most of the folks from the music track were there.

Now I must collapse, it's been a long hard day.
ericcoleman: (Default)

I am playing in Ames this Tuesday at 8 at the Ames Progressive office

I'm playing at Capricon February 15 - 5pm in the internet cafe, as well as running Radio Capricon all weekend. More information on that soon.

I am a part of The Marscon Dementia Track - February 29 - March 2. I'm playing friday night, which means you get to hear a couple of songs that I usually don't do at cons ... be afraid, this is going to be a more ... well ... let's just say that I am dipping back into my roots a little bit

I will be at Conestoga July 25-27. According to their recent new release I am playing friday night and saturday afternoon. The other musician verified is Bland Lemon Denton, (he's the guy who wrote Buddy Holly is Alive and Well and Living on Ganamede a very silly book that I dearly love).

And of course ... The Toyboat 2008 (we'll have a name for it soon) Tour

Toyboat Shows
Demicon - May 2-4
Duckon - June 13-15
Archon - October 3-5
ericcoleman: (Default)
Toyboat practice was amazing. We got through everything in pretty good shape, and got a couple of new-ish songs arranged. We work so fast now. Their practicing a lot together has gotten them used to each other, and makes it easy for me to step in when I can get there. And this is the least ego-driven band I have ever heard of. We are all on the same page completely. It's truly a band. We will be hanging out some in the filk room at Capricon, and at least a couple of us will be going to Filk Ontario. Then it is on to Demicon, Duckon, and now that we have talked about it as a band, Archon is official (there was a little bit of doubt due to a possible conflict)

[livejournal.com profile] exapno's party was very pleasant, but we seem to have missed out on the music ... why was that Xap ??? There was some music, much conversation, much telling of stories and much fun. The Xaplings had no idea I was going to be there, so X1 did much yelling when he answered the door.

Sunday we had lunch with [livejournal.com profile] polyfrog & [livejournal.com profile] mairzydotes at Pita Inn, yeah. that's a shock I know. We then went back to Chez Dork to get my laptop and the Squirrel's CD player and headed back to Iowa.

It was a marvelous weekend.
